(1) Residence halls.
(a) Residence hall contracts. Each university residence hall has a framework of rules, policies, and traditions for the effective operation of its program. A student signing a residence hall contract agrees to abide by the residence hall policies set forth in the residence hall contract.
(b) Residence hall conduct board.
(i) Residence hall conduct boards are empowered to hear cases of alleged violations of the residence hall contract and to issue sanctions when a board finds a resident or residents responsible for a violation of a residence hall contract. Residence hall conduct board hearings shall be conducted in accord with this chapter.
(ii) Student conduct code. Violations of a residence hall contract which also amount to a violation of university conduct regulations may also subject an accused student to the university conduct system, regardless of whether or not the violation is handled at the hall level.
(2) Fraternities and sororities.
(a) Governing regulations. Each of the fraternities and sororities has developed policies and regulations governing the conduct of members and the operation of the organizations. Annual agreements between the university and each fraternity and sorority also govern the behavior of members. In joining one of these groups a student assumes the responsibilities of the living group organization.
(b) Student conduct code. Violations of fraternity or sorority living group policies or regulations which also amount to a violation of the university conduct regulations or violations of fraternity or sorority living group agreements with the university may also subject the accused student or students to the university conduct system, regardless of whether or not the member's fraternity or sorority organization handles the violation at a living group level.
